TAMPA, Florida (AP) - Former Democratic gubernatorial candidate Alex Sink is debating whether to seek a rematch next year against Republican incumbent Rick Scott.

The 64-year-old Tampa banker is torn. She wants to develop ideas through her FloridaNext foundation to make the state a place where startup businesses flourish.

She also knows that her ideas would go much further if she sat in the governor's office. She just doesn't know if she has the will for another campaign.

A big reason is the loss of her husband, Bill McBride. She was strategizing with him about another gubernatorial run before he died suddenly of a heart attack in December.

She said she relied on McBride for his advice. She said his death has made it less likely that she will run.
